AACR & ASCO 2021 - Mid-Year Review (Coming Soon)

Preliminary results from a phase 2 study of isatuximab in patients with amyloid light-chain (AL) amyloidosis who were previously treated showed encouraging efficacy and a good safety profile.
Consolidation treatment with bortezomib + lenalidomide + dexamethasone (VRD) followed by lenalidomide maintenance proved superior to lenalidomide maintenance alone in progression-free survival and myeloma response among transplant-eligible patients with NDMM.
Although promising efficacy and acceptable toxicity were reported for belantamab mafodotin + pomalidomide + dexamethasone in patients with RRMM, the high rate of dose holds at the 2.5-mg/kg level warranted examination of alternative dosing schedules.
Adding daratumumab to lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone induction and consolidation, followed by maintenance with lenalidomide ± daratumumab for transplant-eligible patients with NDMM elicits deep and improving responses, with no additional safety concerns upon longer follow-up.
Results from a first-in-human study of AMG 701, an anti-BCMA BiTE molecule, showed an acceptable safety profile, promising efficacy, and a favorable pharmacokinetic profile in heavily pretreated patients with RRMM, thereby supporting ongoing evaluation.
